Fort Morgan raid could have implications for businesses statewide Last week, immigration agents and local law enforcement in Fort Morgan raided a dairy farm and found that nearly ninety percent of its workers were in the country illegally. Eleven men are now being held in the county jail on charges of identity theft. The raid is one of the biggest in the state over the past year, and brings to light the high number of undocumented workers in Colorado's farming industry.
